Austin Hamilton (Cotw) – Caring and Generosity

Georgia Military College recognizes Austin Hamilton for earning the Character of the Week Award in demonstrating the virtues ofCaring and Generosity. I would like to nominate Austin Hamilton for Character of the Week. Prior to the Christmas break Austin came to me with an idea to collect coats for those in need. He collected and decorated boxes which were placed in Jenkins and Miller Halls and as the collection time neared he made sure that these items were collected and donated to those in need. Many individuals and families were either blessed with these coats as gifts or helped to stay warm during a time that has been unseasonably cold. These fellow citizens benefited thanks to the efforts of this young man. Many thanks to Austin and his family for thinking of others at a time when many teenagers are more concerned with receiving than giving. I am proud of you Austin!
